30 September

One of my favorite parts of my job as a teacher of toddlers

is getting to go to the art studio twice a week.

Sometimes the art teacher lets me paint too!

I have been driving into the Wonderland subway stop

instead of taking the bus to work this week.

One day I could only find parking toward the back of the garage.

When I got off the subway and walked up the 3 flights of stairs to my car

I was greeted with this view

 pumpkins in the markets on Charles

I will be choosing one to carry back to our class room this afternoon

 We still don't have baby Verne.

Hopefully by this time next week there will be a new grandson for me!

 I love the crisp cool days of early Autumn.

Everything is so pretty and perfect walking weather!

29 September

I watched You've Got Mail on Sunday.

I love the way Meg Ryan dresses in that movie, and her apartment, and the fact that she

owns a children's book store and walks to work in the morning, and buys flowers on the way...

It was the first cool day of the season....

Grey day, 
dark at four,
Hurry home,
shut the door,

-Shirley Hughes's not exactly dark at four yet but the writing is on the wall.

Though I know I'm in the minority, I love when it gets dark early.

Everyone all pulled in close and cozy.

It's not anywhere close to snowing yet....thank goodness.

In fact, I've used a very heavy hand with the editing

26 September

the good

door ways of Beacon Hill

The weather's been so pretty lately that the folks on the hill

have taken to leaving their doorways open of an afternoon

to let some of the delicious autumn air in

the random

This sweet little fella was waiting for his lady on Charles Street

the fun 

Sunday was a beautiful cool autumn day

on the northshore of Boston.

I had the best time prowling one of the old parks

in the little seaside town of Marblehead.

I grew up there but live in Nahant now, which is a few towns over.

The good, the random, the fun
sharing his beauty
Monday musings
Monday mellow yellow
making your home sing

23 September

sailing away of an afternoon at the old fort

pretty sweet way to while away the day

mums and pumpkins

at a Charles Street Market

crazy beautiful sunset on Monday night

I came home from work and scurried across the street to the beach to photograph it

There were a few other folks doing the same thing

and when we walked by one another every one would mention

that it was certainly one of the prettiest sunsets they had seen all year.

Even the next morning as I rode the bus to work

there was still mention of it

I love where I work in Beacon hill.

When ever I can I walk the little side streets and alley ways

photographing as I go....

Most days I hurry back to work

before my lunch hour ends after wandering around for almost an hour

 I get my bearings and either go up a hill

or down a hill

or over a bit and then up or down.....

past the back of the state house

and on to Cambridge street.

Because when I needed it, this is what the Lord gave me.

the path to short beach

No where does one feel the end of summer 

quite as strongly as in a seaside village.

The beaches are empty again

walks of a morning are mostly solitary....

the piping plovers are still here but overhead we hear the call of Canadian geese

the pink and white of the beach roses 

have turned to orange of rose hips

on the wild bushes along the dunes

and bayberry scents the ocean air now

 goldenrod is blooming on the edge of the path

I've taken to tea of an afternoon on a Sunday 

and while I haven't worn a wooly sweater yet

they are folded in the drawers that yesterday held bathing suits.

I photographed this big piece of driftwood in the morning 

as I walked the beach on my way to the little village market to buy milk.

When my husband and I walked the beach with the boys later that afternoon

the tide had dragged it back out to sea.
